a woman killed her childhood friend who was pregnant. the charges she is facing and why police say she did it. come on in pop pop. happy birthday. i just had a heart attack... and now i have a choice. for her. for them. and him. a choice to take brilinta. a prescription for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin ...no more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix.
and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor. since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers. a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery and all medicines you take. i will take brilinta today. tomorrow. and every day for as long as my doctor tells me. don't miss a day of brilinta.
we have an update on a story we first told you about yesterday morning. she is charged with stabbing her pregnant to death and cutting her baby from her womb. she was found in a pool of blood in an apartment in the bronx and she was nine months pregnant. her friend, ashley wade, stabbed her after the two got into an argument, and after police arrived wade claimed she gave birth. a fire started yesterday afternoon on the 50th floor of
the iconic john hancock tower, and the 100-story building that includes offices, apartments and an observation deck is one of chicago's most popular tourists attractions. and temperatures pretty mild at this point. we are not going to go far from the 40s and 50s we are seeing, and we may drop a little. we are looking at a cool start. we are looking at the chance of a few rain drops of a front moving through, could bring rain and lingering rain or showers to parts of the delmar and eastern new jersey. i will track that for you in just a few minutes. a cool breeze, seeing the sunshine return to the western zones including philadelphia and feeling the breeze pick up throughout the morning into the afternoon hours. watching the thanksgiving forecast, and it's a warm one.
58 degrees in philadelphia. 40 in allentown, and 49 in westchester, and 51 in philadelphia, south and east, temperatures mainly in the 50s. not a bad start to the day in terms of the temperatures, but again we are going to top out around 51 and see the temperature drop a bit. a live look outside, cloudy across the area, and we are also tracking the chance for showers and that will be over the next few hours, so don't be surprised if you see a raindrop or two. we are seeing winds 5 to 10 miles per hour, and as we go throughout the morning into the afternoon hours, we are going to see the winds pick up, and it will be breezy this afternoon. we will see a little more sunshine working through the west, and cloud cover off to the east, and still seeing rain drops off through new jersey and then monday, we're going to see a cold day and see temperatures in the 40s, right around 44 degrees, topping out monday, and then we are going to warm it up by the end of the workweek, so
up and down this week. cool and breezy, and winds out of the northwest at 10 to 20 miles per hour, and it will feel more like the low 40s as we head throughout the afternoon. i mentioned the rain drops early this morning and later in the afternoon. today 51, and monday, 44 degrees, and 49 on tuesday and mostly sunny skies. we will keep it dry for most of the workweek. look at thanksgiving. temperatures near 60 degrees. friday, partly sunny. everybody is getting their shopping done on that day, and 60 degrees, and you don't need the coats, good thing, and saturday, a chance for showers and 55. there are several events in our area today to celebrate the holiday season. if you are looking for something to do, looking to get out of the house, two communities in philly will come together for a thanksgiving tradition, a parade
at noon, and floats and bands will go down franklin avenue, and it will include an appearance by santa himself. you can take your dogs or cats to the deptford mall. it's from 6:30 to 8:30 this evening. coming up in sports, mark sanchez gets his first start of the season today at the linc. we will get his thoughts on facing the buccaneers. the sixers had a double-digit lead at half-time against the heat and let's see if they could hang on for their first win of the season.
the german-style open market features gifts and crafts from more than 60 vendors. this is the first time the village is open before thanks giving and runs through december 27th. and then the all new holiday market is around the corner. this is a place from local artists and designers to showcase the work. the made in philadelphia holiday market also runs through december 27th. for a lot of folks, the holiday season is a time to give back and that's true of nbc anch anchor. good to see you out there, vie. good morning to you. i am danny pommells from comcast sportsnet.
mark sanchez gets his first start of the season for the birds and faces a bucs defense ranked in the top ten of the nfl. >> i think they are one of the best we've seen, the two linebackers inside are tough, and mccoy, that guy is a heck of a player, and they are secondary, and we faced him in dallas, you know, so he's got a good comfort level with us, so that's another guy to look out for. >> on the flip side, tampa bay's quarterback, the number one pick in the draft, and winston has gotten better as the season progressed. the eagles say they need to get them to early. >> i don't think he has been hit enough. if you hit any quarterback, you shake them up and they start getting frustrated. >> i think for us, we have to
make sure we get him down. no matter how you look at it. that's what we kind of like, you know, that's what we thought about it when we looked at it. >> the flyers and sixers both on the road and both struggling to get in the win column. the orange and black from two wins in the 12 games and the sixers are still winless in the season. noel, starting things off right. the big fella getting fancy. the steal and the behind the back move to get bumped up. okafor, he had 11 boards, and sixers scored just four points in the final seven plus minutes. chris bosh ties it. and then sixers lose, 26-91, 0-14 to start the season. flyers and senators.
flyers just 1-6-4 when the opponent scores first. early second, ryan intercepts the pass and we have a two-on-one. forget about it. mike hoffman all set up for the goal. the flyers shut out for the second straight game. and financial field, walker, owls win 31-12. penn state taking on minnesota. a pass in front of the happy valley faithful. and michigan responds, though. a quick pass on the wide receiver screen, and he weaves
into the end zone for six. and franklin field, the quakers can clinch a share of the title. and o'malley with a nice touchdown grab. after one, they win 34-21 and storm the field, why don't you? they get to share the ivy league crowd. st. joe's prepare in the final minute. what a catch. 29-28, lasalle gets the victory. college basketball, a tough day for the locals as drexel loss, and north carolina lost to northern iowa, and that's why we watch. that's sports and i am danny pommells from comcast sportsnet.
the city is ready for the thousands of runners and spectators. we'll have a live preview and a look at the road closures. >> we are going to see winds gusting over 20 miles per hour at times, and that's no fun. we're waking up to clouds and might see a few rain drops this morning and we'll track that for you and tracking a cold start to your monday morning, too. we'll talk about that coming up.
